Cool. I'm all for a name change, so if the other lists are pretty much dead
(and I have no intention of resurrecting those :-P) a name change is fine as
far as I'm concerned. Thoughts anyone?

Also, "Creative Design Team" sounds like it was intended to be much more
than just human-computer interaction design (icons, desktop backgrounds,
logos). If it's aimed at ameliorating the interface and user experience, I
think Humdinger's proposal to completely start anew, including a new name,
is in order. Some suggestions:
"Form & function" (by Humdinger)
"Human Factors"
"Interface Design"
"Human Factors and Interface Design" (HFID, a common term in this field)
"Human Factors, Form & Function" (HFFF, pronounced "Huffuffuff")
"Cognitive Engineering"
